Asia's Next Top Model 2


Asia's Next Top Model, ANTM, Katarina Rodriguez, Jodilly Ignacio Pendre


The Philippines was one step away from the coveted title of Asia’s Next Top Model in the first season. Stephanie Retuya was runner up to Thailand but now that the reality show is back, will the Philippines win this time? This season has no less than two Filipina contestants, so there are double chances of winning. I wonder if our recent lucky streak will continue when it comes to beauty shows.

Jodilly Pendre and Katarina Rodriguez are the Philippine bets to the Tyra Banks franchise, Asia’s Next Top Model or AsNTM. Dubbed by the local press as ‘the morena’ and ‘the mestiza’, each candidate brings a unique quality to the table. Jodilly Pendre, is younger between the two but at 20 years old, she already has had several modeling gigs under her belt. Katarina Rodriguez, on the other hand is a Filipina American who moved to the Philippines barely a year ago. She is a year older than Jodilly but has had no modeling experience yet – which unfortunately shows – based on the recent episode that was aired last January 8.


Asia’s Next Top Model is a show that is based on the American reality show, America’s Next Top Model. It has been reinvented in several different countries but only found its way to Asia last year. It is hosted by Nadya Hutagalung with Joey Mead King and Mike Rosenthal.

The second season began a week ago and has signed onto 13 episodes whereupon we will know who Asia’s Next Top Model will be. (Hopefully a Filipina!)
